Mahmoud Abumayyaleh an Arab-American, the owner of the store, Cup Foods, whose employee called the police on George Floyd for allegedly using a counterfeit $20 bill has vowed not to involve law enforcement in the future. But that is after the fact. Most store owners would have just returned the said $20.00 in question and ask the customer to leave.
But many in the African American community are beginning to ask the question as regards the behavior of Mahmound’s previous history of race relations. Abumayyaleh wrote that he was not at the store when Floyd came in on the evening of May 25, but that one of his employees followed “a state policy that requires stores to call the police in the case of counterfeit bills.”
Cub Foods was well known in the community, but many have begun to question the behavior of Cup Foods’ employee for calling the police that resulted in the murder of Floyd.
The role that Cup Foods’store and its employee played in the arrest and murder of Floyd needs to be examined given the fact that Arabs like other minorities are Wellcome to do business in black neighborhoods but does not have a good record in terms of race relations with African-Americans.
Arabs racism and attacks on Blacks are well documented. While African Americans are welcoming to other minorities, Arabs and Koreans tend to take advantage of African-Americans’ hospitality and in many cases, undermine and collaborate with white police to destroy the Black community.
